I will need a letter to file suit, if you can do that for me. I also have another question in regards XXXXX XXXXX truck.
Where would I be able to obtain the document to "threaten to file suit"? My second question is, when my truck was making that retched noise two weeks ago, I hired a mobile mechanic, he came out to look at my car. He told me it was the engine, and he bought a heavier oil, to subside the noise. It didnt help, he then proceeds to tell me that he would have to rebuild the engine. I at this point couldnt drive my vehicle, so he called a junkyard he does business with, and told me that the dealer usually sells engines for $1,200, but that he would sell the mechanic the engine for $800. So after hearing from 2 different mechanics before this guy that it was my engine, and being stuck walking with my autistic son, I went with what this current mechanic said. He said he would put a whole new engine in my truck for $1,900. He said he needed a deposit to hold the engine. I told him all I had was $400.00 until July. So I withdrew the money from my account and handed it to him. I signed, a paper, but he refused to give me a copy of the reciept. This Monday the mechanic that fixed my timing belt told me he wouldnt charge me that much. So I went with the cheaper price, when I called the mechanic I gave the $400 to for my money back he got upset, told me I cant change my mind, told me he had everything set up. I asked him if he had already got my engine, and he said No. Yes Im stupid for not being more aggressive in getting a reciept from him, but what can I do to get my money back, if anything. I do have the withdrawel statement from my bank but, Im at a loss.
Alright thank you very much.
